Understanding the Benefits of Preschool

Preschool is a not another word for daycare or babysitting. In fact, preschool is one of the most important investments you can make in your child’s education. The skills kids learn in preschool shape them as students and as people. At Campbell Christian Schools, we offer early preschool for two to three year olds, middle preschool for three to four year olds, and pre-Kindergarten for four to five year olds. Each curriculum is designed to help your child develop age-appropriate academic and social skills, along with spiritual growth. Here are some of the benefits.

Socialization Skills
Interacting with teachers and other students helps preschool kids build essential social skills. In the course of playing and learning, kids navigate tricky issues, like sharing, problem solving, and being part of a peer group. They begin to see how their behavior affects those around them, as well as how others’ behaviors affect them. These skills help kids learn how to build and maintain friendships and be a part of a team. They also help kids learn empathy.

Personal Responsibility
In preschool, kids play important roles in keeping the classroom functioning. They have to clean up after tasks and do things like set up their own snacks and put on their own coats. These are things that children are often expected to know how to do when they enter Kindergarten. An even more significant benefit is the sense of responsibility kids learn by playing their parts and the confidence they gain from doing things independently.

Curiosity
Preschool is a world of wonder for kids. They get to explore an array of topics and are encouraged to ask questions about everything around them. This immersion in new discoveries instills a sense of curiosity in kids that helps them become great learners. When kids are taught at a young age to be hungry for knowledge, school will be a pleasure as they get older.

At Campbell Christian Schools, our preschool programs are filled with playful learning activities to help your children develop important academic and social skills. We invite you to take a tour of our Campbell private school and to learn more about our preschool, elementary, and junior high programs. Call us today at (408) 370-4900. 

A Brief Overview of Our Admissions Requirements

At Campbell Christian Schools, enrollment in our private school program is open to anyone who completes the admissions process. Enrollment for the fall opens in February and continues until all spots in the program are filled. Our classes fill up quickly, so we recommend that you apply early to avoid disappointment. We process applications in the order in which they are received, and we look for children who are excited about learning, are caring to their friends and families, and desire to learn and grow in a Christian community.

Each of our school programs has individual admissions requirements. For our Early Education Center, we simply ask that parents complete the paperwork required by the state of California, Community Care Licensing Division. For elementary school, students entering Kindergarten or first grade must take the Gesell Developmental Observation test. All other students must submit past report cards and standardized testing results. For junior high, we require report cards from students’ current schools as well as their standardized test scores.

Keep Your Elementary School Child Entertained This Summer With These Ideas!

Children with lemonade stand

Kids look forward to summer vacation all year, but for parents, the summer months present special challenges. Elementary school students, in particular, need help staying entertained, even when mom and dad’s schedules stay jam-packed. Further, it’s important to help prevent the infamous summer brain drain that leaves kids behind the curve when they return to their private elementary school in the fall. If you’re looking for a way to beat summer boredom and to keep your kids learning during the summer months, give these tips a try.

Emphasize Reading
Instilling a love of reading in your child can help ensure that he or she will never really be bored. Summer is the perfect time for kids to develop the habit of reading for enjoyment. Make weekly trips to the library and help your kids dive into an array of age-appropriate selections. They won’t even know that they’re building their vocabularies and boosting their reading skills along the way. Summer is also a good time for a special indulgence for kids—audio books. Even though they’re not practicing reading with an audio book, they are still learning new words and learning to love stories.

Get Outdoors
Playing outside is a great way for kids to get physical activity when they are not in school and going to gym class, and the outdoors can also act as a huge science laboratory waiting to be explored. Help your kids identify things like insects, flowers, and plants, and use the internet to learn facts about what you see. Give your kids a notebook to keep track of scientific discoveries.

Have a Lemonade Stand
Lemonade stands teach kids plenty of lessons they can take back to school, from communication skills to money management. Help your kids get the stand set up, and get older kids to handle the money transactions. This summer tradition is packed with learning potential.

The summer programs at Campbell Christian Schools can also help keep your kids engaged with learning this summer. The rigorous curriculum at our private Christian school promotes both academic standards and spiritual growth.

Give Your Kids' Favorite Summer Foods a Healthy Update!

Most kids love hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pizza, and ice cream in the summer, but parents may not always love serving up this less-than-healthy fare. The good news is that you can strike a balance between the flavors your kids crave and the nutrition you know they need. This video explains more.

Instead of banning your kids’ favorite foods, give them a healthy makeover. Choose hot dogs without nitrates and serve them up on whole grain buns. Make pizza at home on thin crusts with veggies and lean meats for toppings. With simple swaps like these, you can keep the taste without the fat, excess sodium, and extra calories.

At Campbell Christian Schools, we promote the importance of healthy living in our classrooms and sports programs. Learn more about the curriculum at our private school in Campbell by calling (408) 370-4900.
